Wednesday February 24 2021

If you were up early, you were greeted by a colorful sunrise. With High Pressure in control, we will have less wind and a warmer afternoon. The deep snowpack areas will reach the 50s, while 60ºF is very possible for Baltimore, Washington, and southward.

We cool back down tomorrow then set the stage for a wet weekend that may start early Saturday morning.  So it begins, the wild weather ride through March.


Wednesday Morning Weather

Warm winds today, but not nearly as strong as yesterday.

Sunrise In Washington DC

My friend Howard Bernstein at WUSA-TV posts sunrise pics every weekday morning… Today was exceptional.



Afternoon Forecast

Temps have a run for the 60s in Baltimore, Washington, and southward.  If you are by the water or north in the deeper snowpack you should reach into the 50s.

Temperature Outlook

As we head into March, expect wide temperature swings.

It is also common for products like this to have abrupt changes when looking beyond 5 days.  Long range weather patterns are harder to pin down, especially in the transition month.
